T IS doubtful if more tonnage of fer- 
rous metals is used in any other single 
form than in sheets. It is also doubtful if 

any industry exists that does not use 



sheet metal in some form or other. 




The 




sheet metal industry has grown steadily 
until today it is one of the basic industries 

i 

of the nation — because no other material 
made by man is more widely adaptable 
to human needs and desires than sheet 
metal, particularly sheet iron and sheet 
steel. The world's fastest express trains 
and ocean-going greyhounds, the small 
toy trains and sailboats for the children; 
the highest skyscrapers, the deepest mines; 
the speedy airplanes, the street cars and the introduction of Toncan Iron to in 



wasted — it wasn't, for sheet metal, be- 
cause of the new- efficiencies and econ- 
omies it presented, was well worth its 

cost. We do know, however, that much 
of this money was lost in a comparatively 
short time due to the attack of rust. 
The first metal sheets left much to be 
desired, with the greatest disadvantage 
being low resistance to the costly attack 
of rust and corrosion. Every reader of 
this book has seen, at some time or other, 
glaring illustrations of the attack of rust 
upon low grade sheet metal — possibly 
with little thought to the enormous loss 
caused by failure. 




From the time of 



automobiles; the city

all depend upon sheet 



metal for some vital 



function.

attempt to gain a foothold for rust and corrosion; 
and when this is attained deterioration and failure 



soon follow. 




Metallurgical Science has long 



sought for methods of combating rust and corro- 
sion, with its attempts to produce a corrosion- 
resisting sheet metal being directed along these 
four principal routes: (l) reduction to proper 
limits of the rust-accelerating impurities carried 
from the ore, coke and limestone into the iron; 
(2) further improvements in the scientific wor Ic- 
ing of the metal during its production; (3) the use 
of other metals as alloying elements which would 
retard the tendency of sheet metal to rust or 
corrode; (4) the use and further development of 
metallic coatings such as lead, tin and sine, and of 
other protective coatings such as paints and 
japans. # The development of the original Ton- 
can Iron followed each and all of these four ideas. 
As it was introduced some twenty odd years ago, 
it was a commercially pure, well-made iron, un- 
alloyed with other elements, but having all the 





impurities that have been known to accelerate 
rust and corrosion reduced to the lowest practic- 
able limits. Later, as a result of extensive research 
in the laboratory and afield, copper in proper pro- 
portion was alloyed, not mixed, with the refined 
iron to make it even more resistant to attack. 
Scientific endeavor to improve Toncan did not 
rest here. As the value of the alloying principle 
continued to prove its ability to prolong the life 
of the metal in service, further research was in- 
voked in this direction. Results of tests and ser- 
vice showed that the eletnent molybdenum, com- 
bined with well-made iron and copper in correct 



proportions, pro- 
duced a true alloy 
showing a degree 
of resistance to 
rust and corrosion 
never before at- 
tained commer- 




cially.

denum in solid solution in the iron forming a perfect 
alloy. But Toncan Iron is not a formula, it is a ser- 
vice, and science in search of betterment goes on. 
If, in the future, research reveals that other 
elements can be alloyed with those of the pres- 
ent Toncan Iron analysis to produce in still 
higher degree those characteristics sought in sheet 
metal for building and industrial purposes, for the 
most abusive services, the metallurgical develop- 
ment of Toncan Iron will provide the answer.

of sheet metal certain outstanding advantages 
which, stated briefly, are: 

It resists to a higher degree than any other 
ferrous material in its price class, the attacks of 
natural forces which cause corrosion. 





* 

Its high resistance to rust and corrosion is 



not confined to the surface or skin of the metal. 
Toncan Iron is uniformly resistant throughout 
its entire cross-section. 






It combines with the high rust-resistance of 



an alloy iron, many desirable physical qualities 
not found in the highest grade open hearth steels. 
It is one of the most ductile of materials. It 
is remarkably soft. It forms easily. Unlike other 
ferrous materials, cold working — cutting, bend- 
ing, punching, stamping, drawing, etc. — in no 
way affects the rust-resistance of Toncan Iron. 

It welds easily by any of the usually accepted 
modern methods. The use of Toncan Iron Weld- 
ing Rod insures an installation of equal rust- 
resistance throughout. 

A uniform and tightly adherent galvanised 
coating can be applied, thus adding the protection 
of a coating of xinc to the already high rust- 
resistance of the base metal itself. 

Through its longer service-life, it has been 
found to cost far less per year of service. Its use 
is more than an economy. It is insurance against 
sheet failures and frequent costly replacements.

Science teljs us that iron and oxy- 
gen will not combine directly ex- 
cept by the application of heat of 
at least 400 degrees F., in which 
case scale or iron oxide is formed 
on articles of iron or steel. As such 
temperatures are not found in 
normal rusting processes, it is evi- 
dent that nature has resorted to 
the only other method of forming |1 
iron oxide — indirectly — by first 
dissolving the iron in some sol- 
vent and then supplying oxygen 
to the dissolved iron, in which 
case the iron and oxygen will unite and 
rust will be formed. • That rust is formed 
by solution is readily proved by test. Dissolve 
iron in any acid until no more iron can be 
dissolved, blow air through this solution, and 
at once red iron oxide appears from the clear 
solution. Or add oxygen in any form — for

The fact that rust will 
form in an absolutely dry 
atmosphere (without the appli- 
cation of heat) is further proof 
that moisture or some solvent 
is necessary to permit solution of

ter is one of nature's most powerful 
solvents, but usually the solvent power of the 
water is either augmented or diminished because 
of other elements dissolved in the water, such as 
acids, alkalis or salts. Temperature powerfully 
affects the rate of solution of ferrous metals; in 
some cases an increase of ten degrees in tempera- 
ture will rapidly shorten the time required for 
solution. Thus, in tropical climates we find rapid 

solution of metals due to excessive moisture and 
temperature. # Differences in electrical potential 
also affect the rate of solution by setting up a 
battery action, thus rapidly dissolving the metal 
which becomes the anode of the cell formed. The 
accompanying chart, through recording the dif- 
ferences in potential between various metals and 
a normal calomel electrode, indicates their elec- 
trochemical relation. Note that the difference in 
potential between Toncan and the normal calomel 
electrode is less than that of other commercial 
ferrous products of its price class. Hence, Toncan 
Iron is the most "noble" of the commercial fer- 
rous sheet materials and consequently most resist- 
ant to solution.

ROM the standpoint of resistance to rust

ably holds first place as a commercial ferrous 
sheet material, ranking second only to the far 
more expensive stainless iron and steel alloys. 
Tests in the laboratory and in actual service 



those metals most resistant to solution will be 
most rust-resistant. # Duplicate samples, 5^7 
inches, were cut adjacent to each other from 
galvanized sheets of each of the materials to be 
tested. Those shown at the top of this page 
were immersed in a solution of 20% sulphuric

In the laboratory 



the accelerated acid test is used. The results 
obtained by this method have been completely 
substantiated in actual service installations.

of solution and oxidation, it is obvious that

ing, in atmosphere.

PHYSICAL 



PROPERTIES 






TRULY an alloy iron, Toncan Copper Molyb- 
denum Iron, because of its purity, alloying 
elements and scientific manufacture, possesses 
many desirable physical properties not found in 
the best grades of open hearth steel. Thus it is 
unique in combining high rust-resistance, ductility 
and workability. # Proper amounts of copper 
and molybdenum are alloyed with the commer- 
cially pure iron. These elements actually dissolve 
in the iron, with absolutely no separation. Upon 



(a unit of the Osram Konz,ern), and enjoys a 



cooling, they go into solid solution. # In his 
paper entitled "New Facts About Molybdenum 
and Its Application," published in 1928, Dr. H. 
Alterthum, Berlin, confirms the statements in 
the foregoing paragraph. He also adds: 4I Toncan 
Iron has a finely granular structure which it 
does not lose on cold working. Its resistance to 
corrosion also remains unimpaired although this 
resistance is considerably affected by such treat- 
ments in the case of all other metals — a comparison 
test with tubes of similar dimensions, but from 
different material, showed even a higher stability 
to 20% hydrochloric acid. While tubing from 
steel or cast iron lost half of its weight within 
two weeks, a tube made from Toncan Iron show- 
ed, within the same period, a loss in weight of 
only 1.3%." Dr. H. Alterthum is connected with 
the research laboratory of the Auer Gesellschaft 



lofty reputation in scientific circles. 




Many of 



the remarkable qualities of Toncan Iron are due 
to the presence of the element molybdenum. 
When alloyed with copper and iron in correct 
proportions, this remarkable metal increases the 
resistance to solution — therefore imparting greater 



rust-resistance. # Molybdenum permits a grain 
refinement which not only improves resistance 
to rust but also imparts desirable physical proper- 
ties. It increases the ability of the metal to with- 
stand shoclc It increases the susceptibility of the 
metal to heat treatment. It increases the elastic 
ratio, that is, the ratio between elastic limit and 
tensile strength. These advantages are reflected 
in the following figures, showing an approximate 

range for Toncan Iron, arrived at after repeated 
tests: Tensile strength, 48,000-58,000 pounds per 
square inch. Elastic limit, 30,000-40,000 pounds 
per square inch. Elongation in two inches, 
30-40%. Reduction of area, 60-80%. Rockwell 
hardness, 36 (B scale). Scleroscope hardness, 
16-18. Brinell hardness, 90-120. Specific gravity, 
7.88 approximately; about 2% greater than that 
of unalloyed iron or steel. Electrical conductivity, 
about l2 l /2% that of copper. Thermal conduc- 
tivity, slightly better than steel or iron products. 
Co-efficient of expansion, .00000674 per degree F. 
Melting point, 2775° F.

ONCAN Copper Molybdenum Iron is ex- 
ceedingly ductile and can be formed into any 
commodity which is ordinarily made of sheet 6teel 
or iron. It is much softer than mild steel, and be- 
cause of its workability is favored in thousands of 
sheet metal shops almost as much for this feature 



as for its durability. 




Toncan Iron can be deep 



drawn, formed, bent, flanged, stamped or spun. 
It is easy to cut or shear and requires less power 
and less labor for working. It can be annealed at 
a temperature of 1200° to 1250° F., to relieve strains 
caused by working and can also be normalized at a 
temperature of 1700° F., followed by cooling in air

ABOUT TONCAN 




UNDREDS of letters in our files from users of 

Toncan Iron bear testimony to its superiority in 

actual service. The physical limits of this page, 

however, permit the reproduction of but a few para^ 

graphs taken from these letters. 



FLUOR CONSTRUCTION CO., LOS ANGELES, CAL. 

Constructors and Engineers. 

"We have made exhaustive tests and are convinced 
that Toncan Iron is the most rust and corrosion-resisting 
metal selling at a commercial price. We have adopted 
Toncan Corrugated Iron as standard on our buildings 
where long life is essential. We are also using large 
quantities of Toncan bolts, nuts, washers and pipe in 
our cooling towers, compressor plants and industrial 
buildings." 



PAINE LUMBER CO., LTD., OSHKOSH, WIS. 

"Toncan Iron is giving us all of the service anticipated 
when the purchase was made. We have installations on 
buildings erected and covered in 1908. These buildings 
have remained unpainted, thereby exposing the cover- 
ing to the elements, and there has been no material evi- 
dence of deterioration." 



SIOSI OIL CORPORATION, TERRE HAUTE, IND. 

"We tubed five wells on our property at Middletown 
using 400 to 450 feet of Toncan Iron tubing in the bottom 
of the hole and finishing up with standard 4 l / 2 pound 
tubing. After eight months of operation, the Toncan 
Iron tubing shows only a superficial surface scale, where- 
as standard tubing of the same weight, used in the bottom 
of the hole, is invariably eaten through." 



KNIGHT C. RICHMOND, PROVIDENCE, R. I. 

Engineer and Architect. 

"We commenced using Toncan Iron in 1917. - -We have 
never had any trouble resulting from the use of Toncan 
Iron and specify it on most of our work." 



C. E. BROWN, BROWNIES SUNSHINE TIN SHOP, 
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. 

Sheet Metal Contractors. 

"I am writing this voluntarily as the only means I 
have of expressing the appreciation of a practical mechanic 
who has handled all kinds of sheet metal for the past 38 
years, I have been using Toncan Iron for years and find 
it very superior to any sheets I can buy, both from the 
standpoint of wear and ease of working. It does not 
flake in forming^as other metals do. It is softer and more 
uniform in weight." 



CHOWAN COUNTY ROAD COMMISSION, 
EDENTON, N. C, 
(Geo. K. Mack, Engineer.) 

14 In connection with the culverts we have used, I 
would like to say that yours (Toncan Iron) have been the 
most satisfactory and convenient to install — we are affect- 
ed by tannic acid in our swamp, and other injurious and 
corrosive waters. So far as we can tell, your metal, 
Toncan Iron, seems to resist the rust and corrosion better 
than other metals we have used." 



CLIMAX MOLYBDENUM CO., CLIMAX, COLO. 

- 

4 'About 30 months ago it became necessary to renew the 
roofing on all our mine buildings and because of its 
weather-resisting qualities we decided to use Toncan 
Iron roofing. We have recently made a close inspection 
of the roofs — and the roofing is in apparently as good 
condition now as when we put it on, in fact, present 
conditions are very strong that we may anticipate long 
life from this roofing." 



MARINE REFINING CORPORATION, 
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. 

"It is now one year since we installed the Toncan Iron 
separatory funnel, and a recent inspection shows no 
corrosion or other evidence of wear. Previous to this 
installation, we tried several kinds of steel, iron and 
alloyed metals, but monthly replacements were a regular 
occurrence. We are satisfied that Toncan Iron has re- 
us of corrosion troubles. In the future where 
sulphur or acid- resisting metals are required, Toncan Iron 
will be specified." 



DEPARTMENT OF MARINE AND FISHERIES, 
VANCOUVER, B. C, CANADA. 

'* Regarding the conditions of Toncan Iron Corrugated 
Pipe used in the construction of two tidal stations on 
the Pacific Coast — the pipe is still in use and shows no 
signs of corrosion. The pipe is submerged at high water 
and exposed to the air at low water — up to the present 
(six years* service) it has successfully withstood the 
action of sea water.** 



MERCANTILE WHARF CORPORATION, 
BOSTON, MASS. 

*'In 1912 we erected several small buildings constructed 
of wood covered with Toncan Iron, and — so far they are 
in very good condition. Our property is close to salt water, 
and we consider sixteen years long enough to determine 
the value of this metal, and we can recommend it for 
similar purposes.**

WHY 



ENGINEERS 



SPECIFY 



TONCAN 



IRON 



TONCAN Iron, because of its versatility, has 
met with broad usage from engineers and 
has proved itself in countless installations under 

Structural engineers 




severe service conditions, 
prefer Toncan Iron for roofing, siding, partitions, 
pipe and many other applications too numerous 
to mention here. Heating and ventilating engi- 
neers specify Toncan Iron for all sheet metal work 
in heating and ventilating installations. Civil 
engineers, petroleum engineers, mechanical engi- 
neers — all types of engineers, in fact, specify Ton- 
can Iron for sheet metal work. # On page 12 
will be found a few of the many uses for which en- 
gineers specify Toncan Copper Molybdenum Iron 
the unique sheet metal that continues to build 
new records of corrosion-resistance, endurance 
and economy with each passing year of service. 




Many tons of flat and corrugated Toncan Iron sheets were used for 
roofing and other purposes, after plant officials of the Willys-Overland 
Co., Toledo, Ohio, became convinced of the extra years of life enjoyed by 
Toncan Iron over other brands of sheet metal. Probably no other in- 
dustry is more watchful of the quality of its materials than is that repre- 
sented by Willys-Overland. 




The world's largest water power project at 
Chippewa and T^iagara Falls. Engineers in 
charge of operations for the Canadian & On* 
tario Provincial Hydro* Electric System found 
much culvert and drainage wor\ necessary. 
Toncan Iron corrugated culverts were chosen. 




After an unsatisfactory experience with another material, the U. S. 
Army Supply Base at T^ew Orleans, La., was re-valleyed and reguttered 
in 1.0.%% with Toncan Iron, which is giving complete satisfaction „ in the 
face of harsh service conditions in this salt water region. 




The Fairmont Mining Machinery Company, Fairmont, W. Va., manu- 
facturers of mining equipment and erectors of this modern dry cleaning 
plant for Carbon Fuel Co., Carbon, W. Va., selected Toncan Iron for 
roofing and siding. They use large quantities of Toncan Iron because 
of its ability to withstand severe service conditions. 




Engineers report ^that, despite weather conditions and the proximity of 
salt water, Toncan Iron Sheets used for siding on Warehouse ?^o. 5 at 
the Fore River Plant of the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corp., <£uincy, 
Mass. , are in excellent condition after 13 years of service. 




Toncan Iron resists rust and corrosion in tropical climates where other 
materials suffer early failure. The Florida Citrus Machinery Co., 
Dunedin, Fla., uses Toncan Iron Sheets to bring longer life to fruit and 
vegetable paclnng machinery manufactured by them. 




WHY 



ETA L 



CONTRACTORS 







1 ' Have used Toncan 
Iron for tome, time 
and will use no other. 
It is soft and very cosy 
to handle . If the seam 
is not right you can 
turn it hac\ and turn 
again, and in forming 
furnace pipe you can 
form it just as you 
want to.* % So writes 
Edw. F. Penny , ?(«w 
Bedford, Mass., still 
active in the sheet 
metal husiness at the 
age of 79 years . 






A corner view in the shop of E. C. Atwater Co., Springfield, Mass. Li\e 
many other prominent sheet metal contractors in the country f E. C. 
Atwater Co. are exclusive users of rust^r esisting, easy~forming Toncan 
Iron, and have been since 1008. 



Touse &* Bac\ operate a very enterprising sheet metal business in Baltic 
more, Md. A glance at the sign above the door leaves no doubt as to their 
sheet metal preference. They use Toncan Iron exclusively. 



OF all professions or trades which specify or 
use metal sheets, none should know sheet 
metals better than the sheet metal contractor. 




In 1928 the Michigan Sheet Metal 6/ Roofing 
Contractors' Association investigated the compara- 
tive rust-resisting merits of iron and of copper- 
bearing steel sheets- After thorough and impartial 
study the Association chose Toncan Iron. As 
a safeguard it provided that Toncan Iron Sheets 
sold to its members should bear the Association 
stamp, "Michigan Standard." No other iron 
sheet can bear this coveted mark of quality, 

Toncan Iron brings unusual ductility and easy 
working qualities. It is more pliable, takes less 
time to form and consequently saves considerable 
labor cost. It also builds prestige. When a con- 
tractor uses Toncan Iron, he is giving his cus- 
tomers the best material that they can hope to 
buy in its price class. 





The Kansas City Sheet Metal Co., Kansas City, Kaiu. t is another of the 
thousands of sheet metal contracting firms which prefer to use Toncan 
Copper Molybdenum Iron, 3>{p sheet metal contractor ever goes wrong in 
recommending Toncan Iron. It grows old slowly. 




L>uring most of 1930, Harvey 
M. Blackwood, Columbus, 
Ohio, wor\ed a double force 
of men — and he attributes 
his good business to his 
specialization inToncan Iron. 
He states that it pays to use 
the best material, thus insur- 
ing the confidence of cus- 
tomers and reaping a heavy 
repeat business.

WHY 



MANUFACTURERS 



TONC AN 



TODAY thousands and thousands of products 
on the market are either made entirely of 
sheet metal or use sheet metal as a vital part — 
washing machines, refrigerators, stoves, truck 



bodies and boats are everyday examples. # With 
manufacturing production brought to its present 
high efficiency and with unusually keen competi- 
tion existing in American markets today, alert 
manufacturers are constantly searching for any 
material which will better their products and 



afford added sales features. 




To the manufac 



turing industry, few sales features can be more 
attractive than those offered by Toncan Copper 
Molybdenum Iron, with its permanence, durabil- 
ity and other notable qualities made known in 
many millions of homes through national adver- 



tising. 




Toncan Iron has been the means of 



improvement in many of the world's most famous 
products, and also, because of its easy-working 
qualities, has been an important cost-cutting 
factor to the manufacturer. A better product, 
protected from rust and corrosion at all exposed 
parts, and economical production — those features 
alone of Toncan Iron make a decisive appeal to the 
manufacturing industry. 




Notice the interior con- 
struction of this trailer 
tr~uck body which is one of 
five built for the General 
Storage Co., Cleveland, 
O., by Hoffman Wagon 
Works, also of Cleveland. 
Side panels are of 14 
gauge Toncan Iron rivet- 
ed to T-iron posts. The 
roofs are of 16 gauge Ton- 
can Iron, supported by 
angle steel ribs to which 
the Toncan Iron sheets 
are fastened. **We believe 
that the extra cost of 
Toncan Iron is offset by 
the saving of labor in 
forming, drilling and 
punching the sheets, and 
we feel certain that the 
life of the bodies will be 
much longer than could 
be expected from ordinary 

steel sheets,'' 
Hoffman official.

manuf actured by the 
Chicago Pneumatic Tool 
Co., Chicago. It has a 

wording pressure of 100 
lbs. per square inch. The 
metal canopy and sides, 
which can be locked in 
place, are of Toncan Iron.. 




In building refrigerator truck bodies like those above, A.nheuser-Busch, 
Inc., St. Louis, Mo., use galvanized Toncan Iron for floor pans, empty 
can compartment liners and refrigerator tanks. Anhextser-Busch, Inc., 
have been using Toncan Iron for the past eight years. 





Increased precautions 
against modern fire 
hazards have given 
prominence to the 
value of metal doors 
in stores, office build- 
ings, factories and 
homes . The door 

pictured above and 
installed in one of the 
leading women's 
stores of the country 
can hardly be distin- 
guished from a wooden 
door at casual sight. 
It is a product of the 
United Metal Prod- 
ucts Co., of Canton, 
Ohio, makers of metal 
doors and trim, eleva- 
tor enclosures, metal 
partitions, etc. Ton- 
can Iron is a standard 
material for exterior 
doors. 



In order to provide a Unit-Heater that will 
resist rust, corrosion and oxidation for the life 
of the entire heating system, the T^ew Yor\ 
Blower Co., Chicago, uses Toncan Iron exclu- 
sively in manufacturing this U nit-Heater .

copper and molybdenum to withstand the

Iron exclusively for their sheet metal needs. 



Because of its unusual resistance to

problem of roof and siding mainten- 
ance — Toncan Copper Molybdenum 
Iron was selected by Consolidation

Toncan Enameling Iron 
by the Ingram-- Richard* 
son Mfg. Co., Beaver 
Falls, Pa. It is typical of 
a large variety of vitreous 
enameled products that 
have already attained 
■wide acceptance in mod*

The Youngstown Pressed 
Steel Company, Warren, O., 
are large users of Toncan 
Enameling Iron for form- 
ed stave parts which are 
to be enameled- The list in- 
eludes oven fronts, cooking 
tops and stove legs, such as 
shown at the right. 



The tuboj the Voss Washing "Machine 
above, manufactured by Voss Bros. 
M/g Co., Davenport, Iowa, is of 
Toncan Enameling Iron. Toncan 
Iron, because of its high ductility, 
can be deep drawn with less loss of 
material and less labor.

of costly experi- 
ments with all kinds 
of base metal have 

convinced man u - 
facturers of enamel- 
ed ware that the 
most economical base 
metal they can use is 
that which assures 
the highest possible 
percentage of per- 
fect enameled parts. 
The Hotstream 
Heater Co. is one of 
many such manu- 
facturers who have 
found that Toncan 
Enamel in g Iron 
is the nearest ap- 
proach to the ideal 
enameling stock- 






Enameled sheets are becoming more 
and more popular for exterior con- 
struction of buildings, such as the 
White Castle Unit shown in the 
circle. Toncan Enameling Iron, free 
from blou'-holes, laminations and 
ot\u*r defects, assures attractiveness 
that endures. 



The slightly open structure of Ton- 
can Enameling Iron permits a tena- 
cious bond of vitreous porcelain en-

LABORATORY 






FURNITURE 



IN the laboratory, furniture is constantly 
coming in contact with water, acids and 
various solvents. Loaded with an excessive 
weight of equipment and apparatus, together 
with a heavy stone top, it must stand the 
action of moisture, mixed with dust and 
acid fumes. There can be no loss through 
corrosion, or rust, in the constructive parts, 
or else, in a short period of time, it will 
become weakened and fail to give the service 
for which it is intended, • Toncan Iron 
Laboratory Furniture — exclusively distribu- 
ted by the Alloy Laboratory Equipment Co., 
New York City — is installed in the labora^ 
tories of many leading concerns, a few of 
which are shown on this page. Among the 
prominent users are: — General Electric Co.,

large cities; leading Sheet Metal Contractors every* 
where use Toncan Iron and are glad to supply it when 
specified. Be sure to specify Toncan Iron by its full name, 
thus: "All sheet metal work shall be rust- resisting Ton- 
can Copper Molybdenum Iron manufactured by Republic 
Steel Corporation." # For your protection every Toncan 



Iron galvanised sheet is stenciled at approximately two 
foot intervals with the Toncan Iron Trade Mark in 
green. Smaller formed products are die stamped with the 
trade mark and maker's name. The gauge is also clearly 
shown. # Look for the green Toncan Iron Trade Mark 
— it's your assurance of longer sheet life, easier working 
quality and greater economy. 



TONCAN IRON CORRUGATED SHEETS 




Corrugated sheets offer the advantage of light weight 
with great lineal rigidity. They add strength to the 
structure in which they are used and they allow a con- 
siderable saving in sheathing and other supporting 
materials necessary with weaker or heavier materials. 
These advantages with the fire protection offered by

ROOF 



V 



-CRIMPED is the oldest form of iron roofing and 
has been used extensively. The construction is 

simple and makes a good appearance at reasonable cost. 

This roof can be applied over close sheathing, to strips 

spaced four or five inches apart or over old shingles (in 

the latter case a 5-inch nail should be used). 




The 



three V-crimped is a pleasing variation from the standard 
and makes a stiffer sheet, while five V-crimped is still 

All three styles are supplied in lengths of 
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 feet, and iiy Gauges 20 and lighter. 




Actual covering width of each sty^e is 24 inches. # With 
this type of roof V-shaped wood strips are necessary. 
These are supplied when ordered — 59 lineal feet per 
square for two V-crimped, and 100 feet for three and 
five V-crimped roof if strips are to be used under the 
center V. # Illustration indicates proper way of fasten-

Pressed Standing Seam Roofing. 



This type of roofing is strong, attractive in appearance 
and satisfactory in every respect. It can be applied over 
shingles, over close sheathing or to strips. # No nails 
are driven through the roofing sheets, but this type of 
roof properly applied has perfectly water-tight joints. 

# Pressed Standing Seam Roofing is supplied in sheets 
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 12 feet long, in 28 and 27 Gauges Gal- 
vanized and in Gauges 26, 24, 22 and 20 either painted or 
galvanized. Covering width in all cases 24 inches

ROOFING 




THIS is an excellent form of roofing and is often 
preferred for large areas and where pitch is slight. 
Cross seams are double locked and notched, and end 
lock is protected by V wood strip. Each roll is 50 feet 
long and perfectly straight, sides and ends of each sheet 
having been resquared before galvanizing. The sheets 
are full width to give a covering width of 24 inches or 
100 square feet to the roll.

PLATE 



TYPICAL of the tireless research and continuous, 
thorough investigation by Republic Engineers is 
the introduction of Toncan Iron Tin Plate, # Toncan 
Iron Tin Plate brings to industry, especially those 
branches identified with canning and food products, the 
answer to a troublesome problem — a rust-resisting tin 
plate. It is the only rust-resisting tin plate on the market 



nature. Because of its economy, Toncan Iron Tin Plate 
is supplanting glass as the containing material for such 



products. 



A few of the other uses for Toncan Iron 



today. 



Possessing the same base analysis as black and 



Tin Plate are: 

Containers for chemicals 

Bottle caps and crowns 

Lanterns 

Gas meters 

Oyster shipping containers 



galvanized Toncan Iron Sheets, Toncan Iron Tin Plate 
is endowed with the super rust -resistance and unusual Lithographing plates for signs 

ductility of Toncan Iron, It draws and forms better than 
steel sheets. It can be employed in many ways and for 
uses where ordinary tin plate would fail. It can be sup- 
plied in all base weights and sizes. Twenty-four Republic 



mills furnish a capacity of 2,000 tons a week 




Toncan 



Iron Tin Plate has many applications, of which the lead- 

ing use is for cans. It is ideal for packing strawberries, Drip pans 



Architectural applications— gutters, flashing, conductor pipe 

Curtain rods 
Furnace heat pipes 
Sound-proof ceilings 
Bread and cake pans 
Stove backs 



apple butter and other fruits and fruit products of acid 



Lye cans

PLATES 



Toncan Iron Plates are a worthy big brother to Toncan 
Iron Sheets and Tin Plate. Made of Toncan Copper 
Molybdenum Iron — nationally known for its remarkable 
rust-resisting qualities and greater ductility — Toncan 
Iron Plates meet an insistent demand for heavy rust- 



resisting plates. 




Railroads throughout the nation are 



turning to Toncan Iron Plates as the solution to their 
plate problems. Toncan Iron Plates are also widely used 
for stacks, boilers, tanks, in shipbuilding — wherever 
long trouble-free service life is desired. Toncan Iron 
Plates are made ir\ a large range of gauges and sizes as 
shown in the following table:

LATH 



D 



URING the past few^ years the popularity of metal 
lath increased to the point of very wide usage, 
but the same problem confronted users of metal lath that 
perplexed users of sheet metal, pipe, etc., before the 
development of Toncan Copper Molybdenum Iron — the 
problem of rust and corrosion. Now, however, metal 
lath of rust and corrosion^resisting Toncan Iron brings 
advantages to the building industry found in no other 
metal lath. # While the durability of Toncan Iron is 
especially desirable in areas where moist, corrosive air 
is a usual condition, many builders specify Toncan Iron 



Lath for all installations regardless of location. Ceilings 
and partitions of metal lath construction on wood fram- 
ing have a fire rating from the Underwriters' Laborator- 
ies of ONE HOUR as compared with four minutes for 



ordinary construction. 




Toncan Iron Lath is easily 



and quickly applied without waste; lies flat; is used with 
stucco, plaster or overcoating work; is designed to retain 
all the beauty of the most carefully planned interior or 
exterior regardless of conditions. In addition to these 
advantages, Toncan Iron Lath brings all the superior 
rust-resisting qualities of Toncan Iron.

TONCAN 



IRON 



PIPE 



Toncan Copper Molybdenum Iron Pipe unquestionably 
represents the greatest advance in more than a generation 
in material for ferrous pipe. It brings to industry an 
alloy iron pipe highly resistant to the attack of rust 
and corrosion, with extreme ductility and workability, 
and possessing practical 1\ the same physical properties 
as mild steel # Toncan Iron Pipe not only has proved 
far superior in accelerated tests, which have been cor- 
roborated ir\ actual service, but has also proved it*- 
longevity of cost -saving, trouble-free life time and 



again in severe corrosive service. 




In the oil pro 



ducmg and refining industries, in chemical and rubber 



plants, in mines, in marine service, in power and indus- 
trial plants, in railroad service, in plumbing and heat- 
ing lines, Toncan Copper Molybdenum Iron Pipe has 
in many cases more than doubled or tripled the life 
obtainable from any other commercial ferrous pipe 
material. # Toncan Iron Pipe is made in all usual sizes 
from i/4 inch to 12 inch; butt or lap welded; standard, 
extra heavy and double extra heavy. It is also painted 
blue for your protection # If you are a user of pipe and 
do not have a copv of the second edition of "Toncan Iron

- PIPE 



A mechanically perfect pipe. Made from 



high grade open hearth steel skelp shaped cold, then 
electric welded so perfectly that the weld is not 
apparent More t han 4O00 miles of Republic Elect i ic Weld 
Pipe have been placed in service without a single record 
of leak or defect to date. This pipe offers many advantages 



to indus try It represents the best combination of dui f il~ 
ity and strength obtainable in pipe today. The weld is 
100% efficient — stronger than the parent metal 
foreign metal is added. It is absolutely uniform in wall 
thickness and perfectly round inside and outside it 



is entirely free from scale and oxide. Easy to weld 
and bend. Republic Electr ic Weld Pipe p oo s cas e s a highe* 



elastic limit than any comparable pipe of t he 



carbon 



content. This higher elastic limit , plus perfect roundness 

and uniform wall thickness, result* in high resistaii « to 



collapsing pressure. For this reason, Republic hU 



Weld Pipe offers advantages in the casing field, especially 



where the casing is actually driven. Republic Ele- 
Weld Pipe is furnished with threads and couplings, plan 



ends, bevelled ends or belled ends to 



Ji vid ual 



requirements. Available in sires f

PRODUCTS 



and double extra strong — black and galvanized — is made 



from uniformly good quality soft weldable wrought 
steel, rolled from solid ingots. Sufficient crop is cut from 
the ends to insure sound material, and the steel is given 
the most approved treatment in heating and rolling. 
Every piece is carefully inspected and tested. Republic 
Wrought Steel Pipe is easy to thread, cut, flange and 



bend, and makes tight joints.

WITHEROW DIE-ROLLED 



Jj, PRODUCTS 



The Witherow Die Rolling Process 



answers the question of fast, economical production 
of duplicate parts formerly made by casting or forging. 
This process imparts great strength and rigidity, thus 
permitting smaller cross sectional areas and resulting 
decrease in weight at lower cost. Production possibili- 
ties are unlimited. A trained engineering staff is at 
your disposal for adapting this process to your 
products.
